In a recording career spanning over three decades, master guitarist Earl Klugh has been lauded first as a prodigy and groundbreaker, then as a defining figure, and ultimately as one of the true statesmen of contemporary jazz. Widely regarded as a guitar legend, he maintains a loyal and devoted fan base, touring all over the U.S. and the world playing music that is beautiful, lyrical, elegant, and eternally cool and classy.



Klugh won the 1980 Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance for the million-selling album One on One with Bob James. Collaboration, his 1987 album with George Benson, was certified Gold by the RIAA. In total, he has recorded over 30 albums in his multi-million-selling career, including four No. 1 albums on Billboard's Jazz Album chart, and he has worked with such world-renowned artists as George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Al Jarreau, Patti Austin, and Ravi Coltrane.

Klugh continues to be one of the most in-demand live artists globally. In 2007, he introduced his concert series, Night of Guitars, featuring fellow guitar legends Bill Frisell, Russell Malone, Ray Parker Jr., and Peter White. He has also toured India twice with the sponsorship of the U.S. State Department and The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.

In early April 2008, Klugh presented his fifth annual Weekend of Jazz at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, CO, joining world-renowned peers Ramsey Lewis, Boney James, Mindi Abair, and fellow Koch labelmate Sophie Milman. In 2010, he brought the performance series to Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina; he recently completed his second year at this new venue this past November.



The Spice of Life, Klugh's latest album, came out in 2008 and earned the guitarist his 12th Grammy nomination. His first full-ensemble album in more than eight years, the disc follows his 2005 Grammy-nominated solo classic Naked Guitar. The album finds Klugh sailing through a collection of originals, standards, and even a Thelonious Monk tune. The sound is absolutely true to the Earl Klugh style: timeless, positive, and still fresh, with pristine studio sound. The disc segues effortlessly from jazz to Latin to pop modes through a compositional approach that recalls his Grammy-winning work with Bob James in One on One, spiced with all the lyric flourishes that established Klugh's distinctive signature all those years ago.
